Blog Tour, Spotlight, and Giveaway: Just Between Us (J.H. Trumble)

Just Between UsSeventeen-year-old Luke Chesser is trying to forget his spectacular failure of a love life. He practices marching band moves for hours in the hot Texas sun, deals with his disapproving father, and slyly checks out the new band field tech, Curtis Cameron. Before long, Luke is falling harder than he knew he could. And, this time, he intends to play it right.Since testing positive for HIV, Curtis has careened between numbness and fear. Too ashamed to tell anyone, Curtis cannot possibly act on his feelings. And, Luke—impulsive, funny, and more tempting than he realizes—won’t take a hint. Even when Curtis distances himself it backfires, leaving him with no idea how to protect Luke from the truth.
Confronting a sensitive topic with candor and aplomb, acclaimed author J. H. Trumble renders a modern love story as sweet, sharp, and messy as the real thing, where easy answers are elusive, and sometimes the only impossible thing is to walk away.

My Favorite Obsession, by J.H. Trumble

Yes, I have obsessions! And they often find their way into my novels.

When I wrote Don’t Let Me Go, for instance, I was completely obsessed with this blog Gossip Candy. It’s been shut down now, but did anybody follow it back in the day? She was a huge fan of American Idol during the Adam Lambert and Kris Allen season. The blog was a hoot! I laughed until I cried. I think that humor found its way into my writing that summer.

I was kind of obsessed with rap music when I wrote Where You Are. Could you tell?

I was obsessed with marching band when I wrote the first draft of Just Between Us.

But this, this is my newest obsession.


His real name is Jon Cozart. He’s a 21-year-old University of Texas student. I stumbled across this video on The Huffington Post. It’s gone crazy viral (about 18 million views as I write this post) and I think he may have made an appearance with Hank Green (John Green’s brother and fellow nerdfighter) somewhere. Australia? Anyway, this video is so clever! After you watch it, check out his Extreme Cup Song and his Glee audition. Stalk him on Facebook! His song is tearing up the charts on iTunes too. Download it. Yes, I’m obsessed. You can thank me later! BTW, he’d make a great character in one of my novels!
